    One of the better examples of the humor in  the  computer  industry's
    "jargon file" is that the correct acronym in this case is ETLA, which
    stands for Extended Three-Letter Acronym.  It's a great parody of how
    such  things  are often done.  And note that, just as TLA is itself a
    TLA, ETLA is also an ETLA.
